Alternatives beat out the mainstream

The Golden Melody Awards have gradually been shifting from their focus on the big stars, and last night's show served to confirm this trend

By Ho Yi  /  STAFF REPORTER

In the Taiwanese music category, five-time nominee Shih Wen-bin (施文彬) picked up best male singer and taime (台妹) prototype Jeannie Hsieh (謝金燕) won best female.

One of last night's biggest surprises of last night came when last year's Best Band winner Chairman (董事長) beat off Judy Chiang (江蕙), the uncontested reigning queen of Taiwanese-language music and walked home with the Best Taiwanese-language Album. "We never thought we would win and our first reaction was like the title of the album "Jin Ei Ah Gey Ei" [meaning "you're kidding" in Taiwanese]," said the band backstage.

At the end of the evening, the prestige categories offered few surprises, as Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) finally won a long-overdue award for best female mandarin singer, and the evening finished on a slight note of confusion when MC Hotdog got the Best Album award, which may simply have been done to make sure that established artists did not completely disappear under the landslide of independent artists.
